P. Kumar, Shalini Malhotra, Nirmaljit Kaur, Nandini Duggal and Manjeet Singh Bhatia*

It is called novel because this strain of corona virus does not match with the previously identified Coronavirus strains. On January 30, 2020 the outbreak was declared by the WHO as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Coronaviruses spread by coughing, sneezing and close personal contact (Human to human transmission). It can present as a mild illness, Pneumonia or Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS).

The problems will be peculiar due to loss of job or unemployment, financial stresses, malnutrition, appearance of medical illnesses (like obesity, metabolic syndrome etc.), career related issues among students, isolation and quarantine.
